6-Year-Old Md. Boy Falls In Lake, Drowns

WALDORF, Md. (AP) — The Charles County Sheriff’s Office says a 6-year-old boy has drowned after falling into a lake in Waldorf.

Deputies say Jayden Michael Williams of Waldorf and some friends were playing near a lake on Drake Court about 2 p.m. Sunday.

Police say Williams and the others walked on to a concrete platform, where Williams lost his balance and fell into the water.

The others ran to a nearby house for help. A member of the Charles County Dive and Rescue Team found the child in the water several minutes later.

Deputies say Williams was taken to a hospital in La Plata, where he died.

The incident is under investigation, but deputies say the drowning appears to be accidental.
